Squeeze Tarela is a man who can bring a wide range of vibes, whether it be Reggae, Dancehall, Afro Fusion or R'n'B. Best known for his creativity and infectious energy, the talented creative brings to us a fire new track titled ‘Cocoa Butter’.
A fun, playful, afro-reggae beat produced by DJ Coublon, coupled with romantic lyrics is everything we need for a summer hit from the artist fondly dubbed the ‘Record Killa’ by his fans. The track, which premiered with DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra, follows previous singles such as ‘Hottest Thing’ and ‘Better’, which have awarded him hundreds of thousands of YouTube views and Spotify streams.
Having launched an online series titled ‘The Record Killa Series’ where Squeeze Tarela rearranged popular songs such as Davido’s ‘If’ and Wizkid’s ‘Come Closer’ and Drake’s ‘Yeah Yeah’, he created such a buzz online that the records were often said to be better than originals.
Set to continue his ascent through the music world, 'Cocoa Butter' is yet another piece of quality work from this impeccable artist. A captivating visual, directed expertly by Ovie Etseyatse, we see the duo mirror the gloss and good vibe of the record. Influences from across the continents are captured in the sounds and vision that are put together in the perfect summer package.
